A very spooky You're Invited to a Creepover! I am still re-reading my Creepover books, and being so sad that there are no more new ones, and I am slowly reaching the end of the re-read. It was great fun and I have to say I really liked reading this one. Because the ending was also really good. At times these books end a bit abrupt and at times they just don't make me happy... but this one left it open in a good way. I am also upping my rating to 4 stars (it was 3.5). So the rest of the review will be old/new combined. Bold is new and old is non-bold. This one was pretty great, and I really enjoyed it. Instead of a magical monster that wants to eat people, there is a whole backstory and history behind it. I really appreciated that the author added this one to the book. I think if it was just a monster and with the typical: "Yeah, it is magical", I wouldn't have continued or I would have been bored more. But now? Now I was interested in this so called Marked Monster (who actually has some kind difficult name that kept pulling me out of the book to read aloud). It is kind of creepy, the idea that such a beast lurks outside of the town, lurks in your forests. I would move as soon as I would know about such a legend, and especially after finding records of it being a real thing. *shivers* Yep, I still fully agree with this one. This wasn't just a monster out of nowhere.. oh no it has been haunting this town for a long long time. I was definitely interested to find out, along with Jenna, what this monster was and if there was something to be done about it. We also learn about her symptoms because she got cut by the claw. I am indeed glad that they went with Marked Monster, because otherwise I would have gotten pulled out of the story the whole time. Nothing against its original name, but I just couldn't pronounce it. I think it is hilarious that people still live in the neighbourhood of that thing. I totally agree with the me of 2015. Run, move, go away. Jenna was decent, but I didn't always like her. Instead of trusting someone, she held all her fears to herself, which caused her to be super scared and paranoid. Sure, she was brave, but at times I just found her an idiot. An idiot, for not trusting people, for just going outside, even when she knew she was a target. For putting her and her friends in danger. I think I would rather have had one of her other friends to be the main characters, maybe someone like Maggie, who was more fun and more outgoing. Yep. I once agree with me there. I get that she is a child, but she should have trusted someone at least with what happened. Come on, there is pus running down your arm. It is doing some icky things and you just smack on some antibiotic cream and hope it goes away? UMmMMMMM, want to lose that arm? However, I am not sure if I would have liked her other friends to be the main character, unless of course it happens to them as well, otherwise I don't think it would have worked to see the story unfold through someone else's eyes. I am also still curious about that school project she did. What did the teacher think of it? Since it is such a controversial topic, I can imagine that the teacher might not like it much. YES! I wanted to see the teacher's reaction to it. I can imagine it is an unconventional topic and that the teacher will have some thoughts on it. It is a shame because we see Jenna put a lot of effort and research in the whole deal. So please, give us some details! The ending was fun, but once again a typical P.J. Night one. Ending with a twist, or ending with an opening so that the story could potentially go on, but you know it will never continue. Yep, typical P.J. Night. But as I said I like this one more than one of my previous re-reads which had something happen to the MC and then cut off to years later. Which is just not my ending. This one leaves something open and has you thinking what could happen in the future. The Marked Monster was creepy, and while I had hoped for more appearances, it was already scary at times because of all the sounds, the spooky things that happened in and around Jenna's place. OMG, yes, he was so creepy. While we barely see the spooky creature there is enough happening that adds to the creepfactor of the monster. Sounds that are just NOPE, rustling sounds, scratching. I had goosebumps! Something I had this time, or maybe the previous time too but didn't care to write down, was the brother. He was just such a pest. I get that brothers/sisters will bicker but he was just especially annoying and frustrating as hell. I didn't like that the parents gave the blame to something to Jenna, while they knew that her brother has been pretty mean just a bit before. Instead of maybe thinking hey, maybe Jason did something it was immediately them threatening to have Jenna lose her sleepover. Then there was the time he stole the pizza money that the parents had left for Jenna and her friends. And I could go on. Later on we do see he has a soft side.. but for me it just came out of nowhere. Out of thin air and it felt really forced. Would I recommend this book? Mmm, yes and also no. Yes, if you don't mind a character holding everything in and being super afraid, and also if you don't mind an open ending. No, if you don't like those things, and also if you expect there to be a lot of monster appearances. I am still the same here. On the one hand this was a fantastic read, but there were also stuff that just wasn't my cup of tea. Review first posted at http://twirlingbookprincess.com/

    I didn’t really care for this one. I love most things involving monsters and while the mythology and everything was cool, I just wasn’t feeling it. I enjoyed the Native American aspect of the story but I didn’t like any of the characters. I didn’t feel any sort of attachment to them therefore I wasn’t as engaged as I would’ve liked. The ending was decent though. It’s not a bad book, I just couldn’t get past my dislike/indifference toward the characters.

    I was creeped!!!!! I thought the Marked Monster was right behind me!!!! The main character's name was Jenna. I thought she was pretty brave. I don't know if I would have had the guts to go back and look for the monster! This book was rated a #4 - "Sleep with the lights on" so it wasn't the scariest in the series but it was definitely creepy!! I was creeped!!!!! I thought the Marked Monster was right behind me!!!!

    Since I work in a library now, I often discover new books or series when I'm checking in or shelving materials. I saw this series, which reminded me a lot of Goosebumps but revamped for Gen Z, and decided to check out a few in a fit of nostalgia and curiosity. Unfortunately a reading slump prevented me from actually finishing them before Halloween. Overall, I didn't find this book particularly scary, but I definitely would have when I was younger!

    Oh my goodness! I checked this book out from the library for my kids, to see if it’s something we’d like to read aloud. But, this might be a little too much for them. I enjoyed it though, it was super creepy though. As you would expect urban legends to be. The truth of the marked monster is still unknown, but there’s proof enough for Jenna and Jason. This is a great scary read, but not for the feint of heart. I will be checking out the rest of the series.

    Decent, creepy kids read. This is one of those ones that has an open-ended ending and you never really find out for sure if the creepy thing was real and sometimes I think those are scarier than the ones you do!

I though that this book was well written and very interesting, I thought this of P.J. Night's other books as well. This story starts off when Jenna Walker, who has always been interested in the Marked Monster, finds a talon stuck in the tree on her property. She then takes the talon to a sleepover with her friend's and tells a story about the Marked Monster. After the story she scares them by pulling the talon out and ends up getting cut on her arm. This cut was no ordinary cut as she would soon find out. Each day she would clean it out yet it didn't seem to be getting better. She did some research on the Marked Monster a few days after the sleepover and finally came to a conclusion: she had been marked by this horrible beast. Continuing on with her research, she read a story about a girl who had been cut and had the same symptoms as she did. The story then read on to describe how the Monster then came for her after she had been marked, and killed her. The monster killed in the clearing where she had found that talon. She realized, terrified, that the monster would come for her next. Her friends sense that she is scared and try to comfort her. She insists that she's not scared and to prove it, she said that they would have a sleepover outside, in the same clearing where that talon was found. She is very nervous but pulls through with it. Once outside and in the tent, her and her friends hear a dripping sound, dripping from overhead. They look up and are surprised to see a thick liquid substance dripping onto their tent. Was it the Marked Monster ready to come for Jenna and kill her? You'll have to read the book to find out! I would defiantly give this book 5 out of 5 stars. It was an easy read but like I said before, I though it was well written and very interesting. It was so interesting that I couldn't stop reading it and couldn't put it down. I ended up finishing it in one day. The tale of this spooky campout is ranked a Level 4 on the Creep-o-Meter.

    Is the Marked Monster real? Jenna and her friends want to find out once and for all in this title of the “You’re invited to a creepover” series. The legend of the Marked Monster, a scarred-up beast seen around the forests of Lewisville, intrigues Jenna so much that it is the subject of her research project. As her research uncovers much of the town’s early history intertwined with Native Americans who used to reside there, Jenna is convinced there is more truth than myth to the stories.

As her research uncovers much of the town’s early history intertwined with Native Americans who used to reside there, Jenna is convinced there is more truth than myth to the stories. And her strange wound and recurring nightmares lend credence to the monster’s existence. After a terrifying campout near sacred ground, Jenna realizes the horrid truth. Back pages include ideas and activities for creating your own creepovers. The chapters end on cliffhangers, much like the Goosebumps series. The level of scary is definitely subjective; it seems mild at best. But the elements of town histories and Native American legends do add some depth to this otherwise average tale.

    True rating: 4.5 stars. Most enjoyable, and scary, book in the series thus far (counting only the first five books). As I have mentioned in my review of one of the other books, too often in this series the authors rationalize the supernatural -- not so here. As a result, we have a book that's frightfully good from start to finish! True rating: 4.5 stars. Most enjoyable, and scary, book in the series thus far (counting only the first five books).

    This book was fairly good. The story and plot was interesting but the ending was a sudden turn. I liked this book and includes spine tingling parts to this book. I think the author, P.J Night did a fairly well job with this book.
